Let's scary boy bring you to visit whole Kellie's Castle while explaining you about some important facts about it.

Why it is important to know the facts!?
So that you can act like a pro to explain all the histories about it to your travel team!!!xD

Let's kick start!🕵👾

#something you need to know to act like a pro

The construction of Kellie's Castle began in 1915 ( time of the British Occupation of Malaya )

The owner,William was a wealthy,Scottish planter who made his fortune in Malaya by helping to construct public roads in South Perak.

There are 2 buildings actually.

The right one called as Kellas House while the left side building we called it as Kellie's Castle.

So we went to explore Kellas House first.

It is the first home where William stayed with his family.

The house was partially,destroyed during the 2nd World War. 

Therefore,
What is left of the first house is just,the foundation and parts of the wall.

Ok.
The scary boy tell me that he is busy to eat his chicken now so let's ah x bring you to swim the second part of it.💞😘😆

It's the second and bigger mansion.

Kellies Castle construction started after the birth of his son,Anthony in 1915.

William hired Indians from Madras,South India as skilled laborers for the construction.
The bricks and marble were brought all the way from India.

Unfortunately,
On the way of the construction,
A deadly "Spanish flu" struck and killed many of the workers.


#the first floor

Let's go up!🙈
Get your view with linen room, guest room, the son's room, the daughter's room and master room at the first floor!🕵

...
(Ok continue the story here ya)

Thus,because of that,William was advised to build a Hindu temple in the vicinity to appease the gods.

After that they continued their way to 
build the mansion but..

As he went home to United Kingdom in 1926,
he died of pneumonia at the age of 56.

His wife then sold this place to a British company ( Harrisons and Crosfield ) and return to Scotland for good.

#ah x pose likea ah x oh god xD

William died in Lisbon,Portugal and was burried in British Cemetery.

However,
It is said that his spirit roams at night especially along the corridors.

(Who knows that reading this paragraph I did have nightmare about it and I scared until I can remember vividly the whole process of my dreams(as I always can't recall what I dreamed xD)) 

Let you see the NG one.

Someone slap him please😒😒😒



The linen room!
(Where clean bed linen and table linen were stored)

#the second floor!
Hello,it's on the top of Kellie's Castle ok!? 😄

See what's he captured.

View from top.
Just normal.
So can you see where we park our car.xD!

The white bridge which you must go through to step in Kellie's Castle~

Wah,what is inside!?

Promise.Last story from me to you today ok ?!😂

This is the lift chaft (Bucket Lift)
for what would have been the first elevator in Malaya.

Amazingly,
This castle is planned to have its own lift,but unfortunately,
The lift construction is never completed as William died from pneumonia in 1926.

So sad,all about died,go down now.
